Traditional chemical herbicides like glyphosate are being banned and restricted around the world and the pressure to find more sustainable ways of doing things is at an all-time high. Organisations are struggling to carry out business as usual and are looking for a viable alternative. Weedingtech provide organisations with the most cost-effective and efficient form of herbicide-free weed control on the market, Foamstream.
Who is Weedingtech and what is Foamstream?
Weedingtech is the world’s leading herbicide-free weed, moss and algae control company with a large customer base across the globe servicing the municipal and amenity markets.
Foamstream is Weedingtech’s patented hot water and natural foam process developed for getting rid of unwanted plants including weeds, moss and algae. It is applied using one of Weddingtech’s state of the art delivery systems. The results are instantaneous and it can be used anywhere, in any weather, and no specialist operator training is needed.
How does Foamstream Work?
The active ingredient in the Foamstream process, the hot water, uses the foam as a thermal blanket, ensuring that the heat in the water is retained in the kill zone (57 degrees and above) on the plant for an extended period of time. This allows the heat to penetrate the plant’s waxy outer leaf layer, accelerating the transfer of thermal energy down the stem and in to the root structure, causing the plant to die or to be severely damaged.
As it is being applied to the plants, Foamstream also covers any surrounding seeds and spores, sterilising them and leading to less regrowth later in the season and consequently a net reduction of overall weed growth.
What is the foam made of and where can Foamstream be used?
Committed to safeguarding people, wildlife and the environment, Weedingtech’s foam is created from a carefully selected blend of natural plant oils and sugars making it 100% biodegradable and environmentally-friendly. It can be used without restriction around people, animals, delicate ecosystems and waterways and has gained organic approval in the UK and across Europe with organic approval being granted in the US imminently.
Can Foamstream be used for anything else apart from weed control?
As market leaders in the herbicide-free space, Weedingtech is continually looking to create additional value for its customers. With the release of its latest range of optional lances, Weedingtech’s machines can be used all year round across a range of municipal and amenity tasks; everything from controlling unwanted vegetation through to street cleaning and gum and graffiti removal.
